In order to create effective, inclusive, and impactful online learning communities - both for curricular and co-curricular experiences - we need to serve the whole student. Fostering a sense of mattering should rest at the heart of our work. This session centers holistic student development as critical to the pursuit of creating dynamic online learning communities in which students not only feel acknowledged, but also feel essential. Participants will discuss key strategies and engage with presenters and each other via Q&A.
